Setting boundaries on vacation: NTA for prioritizing your family 🌴

NTA. Your SIL is allowed to be hurt, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend 8 days in a house with her. Just because someone experiences an emotion, that doesn’t mean everyone in their lives has to accommodate it. You will be frustrated and sad if you don’t get a few days with just your family, but your in laws don’t care about that. Your feelings are not resonating for them, so why should their feelings dictate your vacation. “We are all looking forward to spending some time with you during our vacation. We will be staying in our own accommodations and spending Monday through Thursday as a family. I understand you’re disappointed that we aren’t staying in a shared house, but I hope you can set that aside so that our time together is pleasant.”

"NTA why does your husband care more about his sister's feelings than yours? Your offer was more than reasonable. Hold your ground and tell your husband to get his head out of his a**." 💪
